The BeeGFS® parallel file system was developed specifically for performance-critical environments and with a strong focus on easy installation and high flexibility, including converged setups where storage servers are also used for compute jobs. By increasing the number of servers and disks in the system, performance and capacity of the file system can simply be scaled out to the desired level, seamlessly from small clusters up to enterprise-class systems with thousands of nodes
The Boston Igloo ScaleBox is a platform validated and optimised for use in BeeGFS Storage Clusters. The Boston Igloo ScaleBox provides users with an easy to scale modular block for building scale-out HPC filesystems. This modular approach also allows users to start small and scale over time as cluster demand increases.
